To greatly promote Taiwanese pork, the National Animal Industry Foundation works together with the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan to host “The National Stewed Pork Rice Championship”. Through the screening of applicants, a dozen of restaurants are selected to compete in the championship. Rather than the award for the most popularized stewed pork rice, a group of specialists in cuisine are invited to take on the role of judges as to select “the most delicious stewed pork rice”.
Chen Wu-Hsiung, the committee chairman of Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan, said Taiwanese pork has a tasty smell and the smell spreads all over the places. That’s why he can’t wait to come to Taichung for the delicious stewed pork rice. He mentioned that Taiwan produces quality agricultural products in all seasons and hopefully this information can be distributed to people from all over the world through this type of activity.
Other than providing free samples of stewed pork rice, several shows and performances are conducted to liven up the atmosphere. The low temperature can’t reduce people’s willingness to participate in the activity.
